"Profit over People  OR  People over Profit?"

- Long standing debate

People Profits Principle #46


When People and Profits work together - magic happens!

People Profits rejects this is an "either - or" discussion:

  • Employees want a financially stable company
  • They also want a company that is "going somewhere"
  • They want to be paid a fair wage for what they do.
  • They want to be paid more as their value to the organization increases. 
There are companies that obliterate this discussion, they:
  • Don't pay small raises based on "time served"
  • Do base pay on objective value and performance of the employee
  • Do increase pay for increased value and performance
  • Do relate incentives directly to employee responsibilities and performance
  • Do provide benefits related directly to employee needs/wants
When you align the above with your business strategy and model
the employees will drive profitability.

Case study: A service company was having a hard time getting employees to perform certain highly profitable work. When a compensation plan was developed just for this work, employees lined up to do the work, revenues soared and the profit margin went up by 40%. This also helped retain our employees as no other company could pay them what we were paying them.
